AMP portal works with Opera browser, too. Never tested with Firefox.

Ahahahahaha... no. (this was for @cory)

Sorry for the humor. The client portal is pretty elemental giving you access to your basic account info and platform set-up. There are no statements. No historical trade info. In this regard Amp has not done well.

That said, every day I get an e-mail statement of trades and commissions, every month a monthly statement, every year a tax statement.

I am wondering that there are really no emailed statements from AMP - I am used from Crossland / RCG / Dorman to get a statement every night I made any trades the day before.
Could somebody else confirm that there come no statements?

@Tasker_182 - perhaps you give them a mail or call because they didnīt initialize to send out your statements or you donīt trade at all?

@resist You didn't read all of my post. In answer to the question about statements in the portal the answer was no. I did say, and it is true, I do get my trade statements e-mailed to me automatically every day and yes I do actually trade.

So it was rightly recommended to bring the discussion of rate quotes to this thread. Here again is the rate calculator from Amps website:

AMP Cost Calculator

Now, you have to go through it carefully, making sure you observe the changes when you make selections.

For your understanding, I filled this out as I have it configured for me (CQG, Ninja Direct (free), Static SuperDom) and the prices are what they are listed. (See attached PDF) In my case I trade the TF and it is $4.22 R/T.
Hope this helps.

From the ZF no more thread

@switchtrading

This is from your post on the other thread:

"Hallo Ranger.

I have been with AMP for a awhile now and they are good guys.They set me up quick when I first funded(I used CQG with Ninja and never had problems).
Don't use Ninja anymore.
I also trade on another platform and use the Rithmic feed.
It's nice having a sub account and being able to use a second feed.
I use tt/net with x_trader and a Rithmic feed with another platform.

I have also been with DDT,Howard is a nice guy too.

Sometimes the broker isn't the one with the problem.
If your pleasant and do the right thing yourself,most times that is reciprocated.

Enjoy the weekend and remember that not to expect too much on Monday as there will be a few brokers who are under the hammer due to Zenfire data issues and customers looking for alternatives.

Rgds"

Just wanted to make sure I understood your comments about running two platforms and two data feeds with AMP.

You say they achieve this by creating a sub-account.

So do you have to fund them separately ie the sub account must have funds in it?

Can one go onto negative as long as both combined is positive?

Can you move funds between the sub accounts for no fee/cost?

Can you move funds between the sub accounts yourself via the on-line portal, or do you have to get AMP to do it? If so does it take them long?

Any other factors you think it would be worth us knowing about this scenario?

Has anyone else noticed that there is no mention (URL link) of this calculator on either AMPFutures or AMPClearing web sites.

Unless I am blind.

The only pages about Commissions ask you to fill out a form to get a quote!

Hallo Steve.

You fund an account,let's say 50k.
They give you an account number ex. 54321
You choose platform to trade on and go with Ninja cqg
You then contact AMP and let then know you want to trade another account.
They will then open a sub account ex. 54321A
With this sub account,which has been funded from an internal transfer of your acc 54321,they will then set you up with a platform and data for this account.Lets say x_trader tt/net.
54321. 30,000.00. Ninja CQG
54321A. 20,000.00. X_trader tt/net

You now have two accounts internally at AMP and two separate platforms and data feed.
It's nice when one goes down,you still have a back up.

Hope this helps.
Rgds
